Gibson Family Health Care In The News

  • Good work of young nurse celebrated

    A young nurse at Helen Henderson Care Centre in Amherstview has won her first workplace award.

    Kailey Wemp, 29, smiles brightly when informed she is the home’s Employee of the Month for July 2022.

    “I’m a little shocked; I wasn’t expecting it,” she says happily.

    A Registered Practical Nurse at the home since September 2021, Kailey enjoys her job providing health care to 104 residents.

    “Kailey is always friendly with staff, residents, and family,” says Assistant Director of Care, Melissa Locke. “You will never find her without a smile, and she is always willing to help anyway she can.”

    Pleased with the feedback, Kailey notes, “I am enjoying it (the work). I love caring for people.”

    Before joining the team of health care professionals at the popular long-term care home, Kailey worked in home care for five years.

    “It’s definitely a different environment here,” she explains. “I have found everyone works really well together as a team.”

    Kailey graduated as a nurse from the Brockville campus of St. Lawrence College. She always wanted to work in health care.

  • Lansdowne nurse wins workplace award

    Ashley Foley may be a new nurse at Carveth Care Centre, but she has already made a great first-impression.

    Named Employee of the Month for July 2022, the 36-year-old Registered Practical Nurse smiles and notes, “It’s an honour to get it.”

    An employee of the long-term care home for six months, Ashley left a job at the local hospital for a change and rest. She says she found both at her new job which provided a change of pace and different role.

    “It’s like a family here,” Ashley explains about the health care team at Carveth. “It’s been more than I expected which is a pleasant surprise.”

    Speaking on behalf of the home, Assistant Director of Care Lynn Vereecken notes, “Ashley is new, but does a great job and is friendly, helpful and cares about our residents.”

    “I love being a nurse,” Ashley says quickly when asked about her work. “I love that it is challenging and rewarding. I’ve been a nurse for 13 years and I’ve worked in many fields of health care. I love that we can help people, even though it can be very draining.”

    Originally from Napanee and currently a resident of Lansdowne, Ashley is married with two boys, ages 5 and 3. The family has two cats and lives beside the 1000 Islands Parkway.
